After taking a short break from acting, the country’s ultimate heartthrob Piolo Pascual will soon return to primetime television via the fantaserye, Noah, together with child star Zaijian Jaranilla. They are already on their fourth week of taping and Piolo shares how much he enjoys working with the former boy wonder of May Bukas Pa. “Sobra yung energy ni Zaijian kaya nakakatuwa. There’s no dull moment kapag na sa set kayo. And his eyes are so expressive so it’s easy to draw emotions just by staring at him. Talagang makikita mo that he’s a natural and perfect siya for the role.”
A teaser of the said fantaserye was recently launched on TV and those who have seen it could hardly wait to get more details about the show aside from the fact that its setting seems to be in a magical forest. “Actually dinosaur ako dun. It’s something new. Recently nga lang nag-dawn in sa akin na bago pala yung concept na ginagawa ko. It’s hard to mount and it’s an ambitious project so I am excited. Sana ma-enjoy ng viewers as much as we do because it’s contemporary. We’ve been taping every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday so marami-rami na kaming banko,” he happily exclaimed.
Adding to Piolo’s excitement was the fact that his son Iñigo will be spending his spring break here in Manila. When asked if he planned any activities for the two of them, Piolo stressed that he won’t be exposing him to the local media for one thing. “I don’t have anything in mind. I just want him maybe to accompany me during my shoots. We love to eat out. I love to splurge on dining and try different cuisines. So yun, he’s coming over but I don’t really want to expose him [to the media] because he’s still young. My son's not from the business and I don’t want him to be corrupted [by the usual intrigues in showbiz].”
Although he’s proud to say that Iñigo has a talent for playing the piano and composing his own songs, Piolo insisted that he doesn’t want him to join showbiz just yet. “Sabi ko tapusin niya muna yung pag-aaral niya and then he can decide what he wants to do afterwards. As much as possible ayokong mag-artista siya kasi it’s a tough career. Pero kung yun ang hilig niya, my only request is for him to finish his studies first. He's been in the States for five years already. I was there during his graduation. This coming school year mag-ge-grade seven na siya so mabuting dun muna siya sa pag-aaral mag-concentrate for now.”
